Although part of the prominent little hill on which this recumbent stone circle sits has been removed by quarrying, the setting at the heart of the Howe of Cromar and the spectacular views south and west to Lochnagar and the Cairngorms can still be appreciated. The recumbent, of whinstone, and four of the circle stones of pale red granite remain erect. The circle was about 18m in diameter and it surrounded a ring cairn, 14m across, whose substantial kerb still survives.
